Our motto is Good Music, Good vibes, Good times! If you can bring any one of these into our space we would love to help bring your burgeoning ideas to fruition. As a collective of people who perform and take part in many mediums of artistry we know that having an amazing space where you can present your ideas is important. Let us be that space for your ideas! Even more importantly, we really can't get enough of the vibrant creativity that this city has to offer. We want to see something new and exciting. We want to experience art that makes us smile or steers our minds into unexplored territories. We want you to take us on your journey somewhere we've never been before, and then we want to share that experience with everyone who will listen. That's why we do this, and that's why we're interested in hosting your showcase. Reach out to us with your ideas, and let us know what adventure you're willing to take us on here at the Voodoo Lounge Underground.
Death is a universal experience—there's nothing more human than living and dying!—yet it's "morbid" or "impolite" to mention death in everyday life. Why do we fear, avoid and disparage Death? I want to explore that question, and I want to explore it with YOU. At "Let's Talk About Death," you'll be invited to engage in discussions and writing prompts between performances by featured artists, and there will be an open mic at the end where you can share what you've written.
The topic of this event is Death, but you can expect an intimate, casual, maybe even lighthearted atmosphere. If the weather's nice, we'll be in a starlit backyard surrounded by foliage. If the weather's not nice, we'll be in a cozy basement that may or may not be haunted. ;) Tea and sweets will be served. FEATURING: Alicen Grey Steven Licardi Erica Buddington Omri Kadim and more TBA!
As a writer, my body of work confronts taboos about gender, sexuality, spirituality, and more. I love talking about the things everyone else avoids. I am obsessed with bringing light to the darkest aspects of the human experience, because I truly believe that the world would be a much happier, healthier place if we all learned how to approach difficult topics with candor and openness, instead of stuffing down our emotions and pretending everything's fine.
